Purtell Family Genealogy Forum
I'm positive we have the same family tree. My ancestor is Mary Purtell (wife of John Flynn), the sister of your John Purtell. My records are a little foggy yet, but I believe that their parents were named Edward Purtell (b. 1809?) and Margaret Mary Roach, both from Tipperary, Ireland. Edward's father's name was John, and Margaret Mary Roach's parents were Thomas Roach and Margaret Shanahan.
I have more information, along with some relevant newspaper articles of the family. If you'd like to collaborate, drop me a line. We're in Menomonee Falls.
